Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.
This offseason was rough on my wallpaper creation. Here's the timeline:
My computer decided to die - full fail.
Worked my ass off for my company. Time and time again.
I got a promotion at work and jumped two levels with a pretty nice raise.
Spent some money to fix the aformentioned dead computer.
Got hooked on Destiny for my Xbox.
Watched the Florida game for the 10th time.
Carved out some time for creating a schedule wallpaper.
Determined...somewhat distracted by Destiny...it's only a couple games...NO...determined me.
How did we end up with 8 home games and only 4 away games? Are there B1G rules that govern home and away game in and out of conference?
Has there ever been any official explanation for the scheduling switch that resulted in Michigan facing MSU twice in a row in East Lansing?
At home vs our two biggest rivals then away vs our two biggest rivals is stupid, especially considering it required a switch in venue.
I consider MSU a "top 2" rival now that ND is gone. I consider ND a bigger rival than MSU b/c they are usually better.
I'm not okay with this move by the B1G.
Well, it's that time again, ladies and gentlemen - it's wallpaper season. For this season's schedule wallpaper, I went with a design based on (ok, copied from) a vintage schedule card from 1969.
I like how it turned out, but I do wish I could find an image of Harbaugh in the exact same profile as Bo from the '69 card. If you know of one (I looked around to no avail), I would be very grateful to the person who pointed me to it. I ended up choosing a picture that embodies how I hope to see Jim on the sidelines during our games - enjoying some Michigan domination. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this wallpaper. As always, I welcome constructive criticism and/or suggestions for new wallpapers. Let me know what you think. GO BLUE!
EDIT: Fixed the font with a font more like what is in the original per numerous suggestions. Thanks for the input, it looks a lot better, guys.
EDIT 2: Added mobile (iPhone 5) variation.
Desktop (16:9) 1920x1080

It's that time again. Wow. It's already that time again. That glorious time of year when Saturday afternoons bring bliss and heartache, elation and dismay, victory and defeat. It's time to cheer for the Champions of the West (ironically in the B1G East) and sing Hail To The Victors until our voice is gone. When do we play and to whom do we send defeat? All that and more are answered in the following wallpaper gluttony. In case you missed some of the earlier wallpapers I made in the off-season, I've included those. I hope you enjoy these as they are a labor of love for my MGoBrothers and MGoSisters. We may not always agree on everything (Is Art Deco cool? Is Hoke the man for the job?), but one thing we all can agree on is that we support our Wolverines and to hell with Ohio State.
UM (and other B1G) teams have released the offical posters for the upcoming seasons. I'm a big fan of Michigan's. Between this and the cool weather in SE Michigan, I can't wait for football season. Go Blue!
